joins us. where are we headed here? >> reporter: a lot of direction, raj. some local, some overseas. you mentioned apple. here is what a lot of people all over the country are talk about tonight. wall street worried what politicians are indeed calling the fiscal cliff. which comes from a previous budget deal. basically, what this means is by the end of the year, unless there is a new deal to decrease the country's deficit, two things will happen. one, massive government spending cuts kick in. literally hundreds of billions of dollars worth of cuts. and two, a tax increase. many analysts say this could plunge our economy back into a recession and lead to a sell-off in the stock market because of investors losing confidence in our government's ability to balance the budget. now the worry on this has already started, adding to the fiscal cliff concerns. europe's economy is struggling again. and here at home, apple continues to tumble. all of this leading to a 300-point drop in the dow, and a 2.5% fall on the nasdaq. cupertino-based apple down more than $22. it is now trading at a five-month

home. when people get housing, permanent housing, raj was talking more specifically and he can elucidate more on the stablization rooms, but with the housing, people don't get into housing without providing some documentation and a application process because we have to be sure it's going to work and it's a community building process. we're not taking this information to screen people out, it's more to understand where they are coming from and making sure they will be okay in the housing, but people don't get into permanent housing without some level of knowing who they are and so forth. >> and in the stablization rooms, again, we want to make it as low threshold as possible to get people off the streets. but the kind of supports you have to provide also go up with regard to that. so, for example, everyone in a stablization room must agree to access the stablization room to agree to have case management as part of it. so it's not simply a room that you get and no strings attached, you have to agree to participate in our case management program and that generally means meetin

they wanted -- what they said raj, the gains that raj got on the galleon case. liz: is there anything to flip? maybe cohen didn't do anything wrong? >> there's always a possibility. but i'm saying this, think about this, if you're looking at 20 years in jail, and you're that close to the guy at the top, i'm telling you, raj got 11 for 50 million dollars, you know, alleeed ill-gotten gains. liz: this is the biggest ever. >> this is huge. i have never seen anything like this before, 250 million dollars. that is like going to jail -- i mean, like i said, the numbers they put up with raj, when they added up how much money he made on illicit gains was something like 50 million. okay? this is many many more times. he's facing a lot of jail time. liz: charlie gasparino, 26 minutes before the closing bell rings. you can bet charlie will be on this story. we will be right back with much more. dow jones industrials trying to pare the losses here. down just 18 points. can we make it to the flat line? we will see. don't move. robert: i'm robert gray with your fox business brief. shares of groupon are sur
